ATLANTA -- A security officer says a popular professional wrestler she was assigned to protect assaulted her.
Now police said they are investigating.
The officer said World Wrestling Entertainment wrestler Heath Slater thought she was pretty and tried to get her up to his room.
She said Slater put her in a chokehold started dragging her inside a downtown Atlanta hotel.
“When he grabbed me I immediately tried to grab his arms back,” security officer Corinne Oliver said.
Oliver said it was the worst moment of her life. “And I was saying ‘turn me a loose.’
He wouldn't turn me loose,” she said
That’s when she said the professional wrestler put her in a chokehold.
"I just started fighting with him, trying to get his arm from around my throat,” Oliver said.
She said as she struggled to get away, Slater kept “begging me to go to his room with him,” Oliver said.
Oliver said she managed to get away and was later able to identify her attacker as popular wrestler Heath Slater.
Oliver said her ordeal took place at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Atlanta during Wrestlmania last April.
Oliver was working for the security company Allied-Barton. She said it was her job to
keep fans away from the wrestlers.
Oliver said Slater attacked her as she walked with him inside the hotel.
“She was emotionally injured, physically injured. She had to seek medical treatment.
It was a really bad situation,” Oliver's Attorney Jackie Patterson said.
Atlanta police are now investigating.
Officers sent Channel 2’s Tom Jones the incident report that says Oliver told detectives Slater choked her.
A WWE spokesman told Jones by phone that Oliver's claims are against Slater individually and have nothing to do with the WWE.
Oliver said she won't stop until she gets justice.
“Heath Slater should be arrested for assaulting me,” Oliver said.
Police told Jones the incident is an active investigation and they still have to interview several key people.
A source in the wrestling world told Jones Slater says nothing happened and he was with his fiancé that night.
